    Both of mine shoot well, one rifled, one smoothbore. At shoots in this area, you are only allowed to load one cylinder at a time in competitions due to safety factors. That is thanks to a doofus who managed to shoot himself in the shoulder a few...

    I had the same problem with Unique in my 32-20. I checked my five measures and it bridged in all of them. I bought an old Belding and Mull off eBay years ago and have used that for all my rifle loading since. As long as I pay attention to the...

    Actually I remember reading that the Mauser Brothers did the research and concluded that the 9x57 case was the most effecient BP case, just before the advent of smokeless. I have a 9.3x57 - and a boolit mold, and a chronograph. Oh well, another...

    Consider also your platform. Very different loading for a semiauto than for a Contender barrel. For a semiauto you have minimum of functioning the slide and on the other end you want to avoid battering your frame. Changing springs can counter...

    It has been easy to fly with a gun, simply call TSA at the airport well ahead of time, find out the current rules, and follow them. They are set up to do exactly this. It is not the airline, it is the TSA that handles this.

    Is the plan ~ mould plus the three sets of pins or a choice of pins with the moulds? For me, I'd go with 2 pairs 0.080" Buckbuster pins (or maybe 3 pairs if spares are available) and one pair of 0.100" Buckbuster pins. I can turn the Buckbuster...

    Now that is nice! I used to have a Pedersoli 12 ga. muzzleloading shotgun I loved but it was a casualty of my need for college money at the time and never got replaced. They certainly look similar if not identical except yours is nicer finished....

    Loaded 1/2 dozen of those some CS for an army friend. Said they worked all right at close range. The 209 worked out all right. Kinda worried about the pressure but it wasn't a problem with no powder. Then he started wanting to make a zip gun for...

    What is the proposed full bore/full groove slug diameter? If this goes, I'd like at least 0.730" diameter and more like 0.732". Having said that, if both moulds run at the same time I will likely choose just one and I suspect it will be the...

    Many years ago I bought a couple of T/C molds not because I was looking for them specifically but because I was in a hurry to cast. The only one I'm using currently is the .350" round ball mold. I've got some sensationally small groups with these...

    All patch material should be washed prior to patch cutting/use. Washing makes the weave tighter as well.

    Bigted has great advice; polish that crown! Other tips are: *give 2F black powder a try/*try a larger ball/*thicker, stronger patch material. If the ball has to be pounded into the bore there is some seriously wrong one's procedure. A short...

    Lightning struck the ancient maple tree in my neighbor's yard 2 years ago. It debarked 1/2 the tree which went through the siding on my garage like shrapnel. I knew a Sgt in the Army by the name of Crissman who was in a group strike with...

    They are making it too complicated. Just the water soluble oil and water has worked for decades for me, and most of our club. They ARE good for hunting. Soak the patches, let them dry. Load with a dry patch, and if you need to reload, spit on the...

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
